Faces of Bangalore/Bengaluru- Epiphany

Faces of Bangalore on this feast of the Epiphany. With thanks to the communities of Vidyavanaam, Fireflies, Sikh Gurdhwara, Sri Sri Ravi Shankra, DVK and Maha Bodhi Society and especially Prof Jose Nandhikkara for organising our conference here:
Arise, shine out, Jerusalem, for your light has come,

the glory of the Lord is rising on you,

though night still covers the earth

and darkness the peoples.

Above you the Lord now rises

and above you his glory appears.

The nations come to your light

and kings to your dawning brightness.

Lift up your eyes and look round:

all are assembling and coming towards you,

your sons from far away

and your daughters being tenderly carried.

At this sight you will grow radiant,

your heart throbbing and full;

since the riches of the sea will flow to you,

the wealth of the nations come to you;

camels in throngs will cover you,

and dromedaries of Midian and Ephah;

everyone in Sheba will come,

bringing gold and incense

and singing the praise of the Lord.
Isaiah 60:1-6
